Reflections on Past Faculty Conferences

“My family and I had a wonderfully refreshing week at Cedar Campus. I would recommend this to any believer in the academy.”

“I wanted to say how much I was encouraged and refreshed by the Cedar Campus Faculty Conference this past summer. I met old and new friends and colleagues. There was just the right mix of worship, lectures, and time for fellowship and adventure. There is nothing more encouraging for a Christian scholar than to spend a week with others sharing their work and views. I would call it a mix of a God-ordained interdisciplinary think tank and beautiful vacation all in one.”

“The conference allowed the Holy Spirit to coordinate ideas from Bible studies, plenaries, and conversations in wonderful ways.”

“The Faculty Conference at Cedar Campus provides an opportunity to be refreshed and re-energized for the work to which God has called us. The fellowship with others who are making the journey, the times of teaching and sharing, and the wonder of God’s creation all make for a time to recapture the vision for God’s work on colleges and universities.”

“The meeting is refreshing and relaxing; it best suits the needs of tired and busy academic families.”

“The InterVarsity Faculty Conference was a time of unexpected relaxation in the midst of a busy academic schedule. I was renewed through unhurried times of communion with the Lord and refreshed by new friendships with like-minded colleagues from across the nation. The sessions were intellectually and spiritually engaging, leaving me with a fuller understanding of the practical connections between Christian theology and academic vocation. What a rare combination of academic exploration, fellowship, and rest!”

“The conference is tremendously good. Better than what I could think.”

“The Faculty Conference was exactly what our family needed. It was the perfect vacation with outstanding speakers, delicious meals, excellent programming for our children, and sweet fellowship surrounded by God’s glorious creation!”

“A wonderful setting for worship and spiritual reflection”
